Meet Barrie

Barrie Parker is the owner and founder of Cachettes + St. Simons. With years of experience, Barrie brings her knowledge and expertise in the home accents industry to her most recent endeavor.

Graduating from Mercer University with a degree in art, she began her career with Ethan Allen in Macon, Georgia and would later open her own interior design store. After several successful years in the industry, she and a business partner purchased a 13,000 square-foot, full-service furniture store on Saint Simons Island, Georgia with a staff of interior designers catering to discriminating clients on St. Simons and Sea Island. She later owned and managed a wholesale permanent botanical company with a broad customer base which included TJX/HomeGoods, Ballard Designs, Lands' End, The Bellagio Hotel Las Vegas and Horchow. 

After retiring for a few years, she has opened a great new store on St. Simons Island which has brought her back to her roots and passion of helping the customer create the home environment that they desire.

Cachettes + St. Simons offers unique and hand-selected designer items to accent your home. Beautiful furniture, prints, pillows and throws, lamps and chandeliers, floor coverings, garden elements, permanent botanicals and other home accessories are all part of this wonderful collection of select merchandise. 

In French, the meaning of "Cachettes" is "Secret hiding places", so come visit our store on St. Simons or shop online to enhance your own  special hiding place.
